The Discovery Channel’s popular mythbusting duo busted more than the myth this time. A stunt for the show, "Mythbusters," went awry Tuesday when a cannonball was launched through the side of a California home. The house in Dublin -- southeast of Oakland -- was hit at about 4:15 p.m. when a cannonball was "misfired" from a nearby bomb range, KTVU-TV reported, citing the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department. A sheriff’s spokesperson said "the cannonball took a few unfortunate bounces" before hitting the home, going all the way through the house before smashing the window of a mini van, KTVU-TV reports.
